Truman & Orange has been bringing distinguished and unique liquor brands to South Africa since 2013, and they’ve added another interesting option to their portfolio for discerning beer drinkers: Mazzatti Beers.
The unique brewing methods employed by the brewery in Lagundo, Italy, are why it has such a unique taste that is unlikely to be found in beers produced by many of the big-name brands. The use of natural Alpine water and a prolonged lagering process, where the beer is stored at 0 degrees Celsius for 5 weeks, is what creates the smoothness associated with the brand.
The Pilsner and Lager will be available – described as being “elegant and light-bodied beers with crisp and hoppy tastes”. Sounds good to us.
Italy has a climate not too different from South Africa’s, so light, summery beers that work there are likely to be popular here, too. There’s still some time to enjoy a few of these before the winter months make lagers and pilsners slightly less popular. Check these out if you’re bored by the standard fare of the big brands, or the quirkiness and unpredictability of some craft beers.
